What we're about

We live in a climate of accelerated pace of change. As a consequence we rush to short-term goals, neglecting sustainable outcomes. We must shift toward resilient and sustainable organizations that are quick to learn and adapt. SF BABAM is a community where we encourage you to be curious, share ideas, and explore the new patterns of a VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) world.

1-year anniversary celebration: Battle Royale

Link visible for attendees

Guess what? SF BABAM is turning one year old (in the summer)! What a year it has been. Our membership has grown quickly and has become a global community instead of just a regional meetup in the San Francisco Bay Area. We’re one of the BAMs (Business Agility Meetups) with the highest attendance rates and remain consistent. Thank you for contributing to our success by faithfully attending our events. We hope that’s because of the incredible speakers that we have had.

To celebrate our 1st birthday, we are bringing our past speakers back to what we’re calling “The SF BABAM Battle Royale”! Our speakers will be duking it out, trading their thoughts and opinions on various agility questions and topics. It’s going to be fun and hopefully a bit wild and crazy! And we need your help: What wicked questions do you like our past speakers to address? What topics do you want to hear from our speakers? Enter them on Menti at https://www.menti.com/9bsnmixxoh

We are going to have two Battle Royale events (July & August) for our two different time slots.

For July, we’ll have our past speakers from our 5/5:30pm Pacific time slot (Americas and APAC friendly),
1. Joe Justice (Agile @ Tesla)
2. Marina Alex (Agile in Sales)
3. Evan Leybourn (Change is the only constant)
4. Michael Sahota (SHIFT314 Leadership Framework)
5. Nick Horney (VUCA Masters) - happening in May
Unfortunately, Ahmed Sidky (Organizational Muscles and examples in Riot Games) will not be able to join us.

We look forward to seeing your agility questions and topics! Again, here’s the Menti link: https://www.menti.com/9bsnmixxoh

Thanks,
SF BABAM organizing team: Mun-Wai, Josette, JF, David and Ahmed

How to leverage our transformation skills for rebuilding nations

Link visible for attendees

Sally Elatta, CEO and founder of Agility Health, found herself in uncharted--yet familiar--territory as she engaged in a different kind of transformation: a once-in-a-lifetime revolution in her home country, Sudan, which toppled a 30-year dictatorship.

From meeting with Sudan's Prime Minister to developing Sudan NextGen--a nonprofit organization with a vision of transforming Sudan in pursuit of a shared dream of being one of the leading countries and economies in Africa--Sally will share lessons learned, broaden our vision of business agility, encourage us to let go of fear in approaching transformation, and show us how business agility sets us up with the skills needed to engage in what matters most to us.

About Sally Elatta:
Sally is the CEO and founder of AgilityHealth and a successful entrepreneur and thought leader in the space of Enterprise Business AgilitySM and Measurement. She is a dynamic and engaging speaker who advises top executives of leading global enterprises through their Enterprise Business Agility (EBA) transformations.

Sally is passionate about enabling larger enterprises to achieve true business agility and take Agile and Lean practices outside of technology-only teams. She advises leaders in several industries including healthcare, financial services, technology, and government to guide them through building a holistic strategy for enterprise agility using the Enterprise Business Agility Model. Sally strongly believes in measuring what matters, and that measurement without growth is effort without impact. These guiding principles inspired the creation of AgilityHealth, the world’s leading measurement and continuous improvement platform for organizations.
